This time, JannieJumbo has exposed that source of great rage for the hard-pressed tax-farmed drivers of Aberdeen Cars - yes, dedicated cycling infrastructure.
Now let's be fair to the poor cyclits who, of course, cannot afford nice cars like ours. Apparently there are these things called "Dual Use Paths" which allow the cyclits to actually use the pavements, thus getting them out of the way of the much busier and important tax-paying motorist. Great!
Ah, but these "Dual Use Paths" need these expensive things (which we pay for out of our Road Taxes) called "Toucan Crossings", which the cyclists must use as if they were pestestrians, pushing the button and waiting for the green man. Only in this case they have to wait for a silly-green-man-on-a-bicycle thing.
Yes, as we see in the video, they have to stop, put their feet on the ground, take at least one hand off the handlebar, press the button and wait. And wait. And wait a bit more as the much more important motor-traffic goes past. This reminds the cyclist (who does not work, does not spend, is not economically active) that he is of no consequence. These people (if you can call them people; they do not after all have car insurance or a registration number) simply do not count.
So, we pay a tribute to the designers of Aberdeen's Dedicated Cycling Facilities! Not only do they suppress the cyclits by keeping them in their place - out of our way, off of our roads, and out of our minds. But also these facilites rub their noses in their inferior status by making them wait for us important tax-payers to pass as we speed our way onward to create some more much-needed economic growth! Brilliant!
